gallery-dl is a command-line program to download image galleries and collections from several image hosting sites (see Supported Sites). It is a cross-platform tool with many configuration options and powerful filenaming capabilities.

pypi build gitter





The stable releases of gallery-dl are distributed on PyPI and can be easily installed or upgraded using pip:

$ python3 -m pip install -U gallery-dl

Installing the latest dev version directly from GitHub can be done with pip as well:

$ python3 -m pip install -U -I --no-deps --no-cache-dir

Note: Windows users should use py -3 instead of python3.

It is advised to use the latest version of pip, including the essential packages setuptools and wheel. To ensure these packages are up-to-date, run

$ python3 -m pip install --upgrade pip setuptools wheel

Standalone Executable

Prebuilt executable files with a Python interpreter and required Python packages included are available for

Executables build from the latest commit can be found at


Linux users that are using a distro that is supported by Snapd can install gallery-dl from the Snap Store:

$ snap install gallery-dl


Windows users that have Chocolatey installed can install gallery-dl from the Chocolatey Community Packages repository:

$ choco install gallery-dl


gallery-dl is also available in the Scoop "main" bucket for Windows users:

$ scoop install gallery-dl


To use gallery-dl simply call it with the URLs you wish to download images from:

$ gallery-dl [OPTION]... URL...

See also gallery-dl --help.


Download images; in this case from danbooru via tag search for 'bonocho':

$ gallery-dl ""

Get the direct URL of an image from a site that requires authentication:

$ gallery-dl -g -u "<username>" -p "<password>" ""

Filter manga chapters by language and chapter number:

$ gallery-dl --chapter-filter "lang == 'fr' and 10 <= chapter < 20" ""
Search a remote resource for URLs and download images from them:
(URLs for which no extractor can be found will be silently ignored)
$ gallery-dl "r:"

If a site's address is nonstandard for its extractor, you can prefix the URL with the extractor's name to force the use of a specific extractor:

$ gallery-dl "tumblr:https://sometumblrblog.example"


Configuration files for gallery-dl use a JSON-based file format.

For a (more or less) complete example with options set to their default values, see gallery-dl.conf.
For a configuration file example with more involved settings and options, see gallery-dl-example.conf.
A list of all available configuration options and their descriptions can be found in configuration.rst.

gallery-dl searches for configuration files in the following places:

  • %APPDATA%\gallery-dl\config.json
  • %USERPROFILE%\gallery-dl\config.json
  • %USERPROFILE%\gallery-dl.conf

(%USERPROFILE% usually refers to the user's home directory, i.e. C:\Users\<username>\)

Linux, macOS, etc.:
  • /etc/gallery-dl.conf
  • ${XDG_CONFIG_HOME}/gallery-dl/config.json
  • ${HOME}/.config/gallery-dl/config.json
  • ${HOME}/.gallery-dl.conf

Values in later configuration files will override previous ones.

Command line options will override all related settings in the configuration file(s), e.g. using --write-metadata will enable writing metadata using the default values for all postprocessors.metadata.* settings, overriding any specific settings in configuration files.


Username & Password

Some extractors require you to provide valid login credentials in the form of a username & password pair. This is necessary for nijie and seiga and optional for aryion, danbooru, e621, exhentai, idolcomplex, imgbb, inkbunny, instagram, mangadex, mangoxo, pillowfort, sankaku, subscribestar, tapas, tsumino, and twitter.

You can set the necessary information in your configuration file (cf. gallery-dl.conf)

    "extractor": {
        "seiga": {
            "username": "<username>",
            "password": "<password>"

or you can provide them directly via the -u/--username and -p/--password or via the -o/--option command-line options

$ gallery-dl -u <username> -p <password> URL
$ gallery-dl -o username=<username> -o password=<password> URL


For sites where login with username & password is not possible due to CAPTCHA or similar, or has not been implemented yet, you can use the cookies from a browser login session and input them into gallery-dl.

This can be done via the cookies option in your configuration file by specifying

  • the path to a Mozilla/Netscape format cookies.txt file exported by a browser addon
    (e.g. Get cookies.txt for Chrome, Export Cookies for Firefox)
  • a list of name-value pairs gathered from your browser's web developer tools
    (in Chrome, in Firefox)

For example:

    "extractor": {
        "instagram": {
            "cookies": "$HOME/path/to/cookies.txt"
        "patreon": {
            "cookies": {
                "session_id": "K1T57EKu19TR49C51CDjOJoXNQLF7VbdVOiBrC9ye0a"

You can also specify a cookies.txt file with the --cookies command-line option:

$ gallery-dl --cookies "$HOME/path/to/cookies.txt" URL


gallery-dl supports user authentication via OAuth for deviantart, flickr, reddit, smugmug, tumblr, and mastodon instances. This is mostly optional, but grants gallery-dl the ability to issue requests on your account's behalf and enables it to access resources which would otherwise be unavailable to a public user.

To link your account to gallery-dl, start by invoking it with oauth:<sitename> as an argument. For example:

$ gallery-dl oauth:flickr

You will be sent to the site's authorization page and asked to grant read access to gallery-dl. Authorize it and you will be shown one or more "tokens", which should be added to your configuration file.

To authenticate with a mastodon instance, run gallery-dl with oauth:mastodon:<instance> as argument. For example:

$ gallery-dl
$ gallery-dl oauth:mastodon:
